Patti S. Paulsen
Live Event Artist
Hello - Thanks for stopping by my site! I've been painting live weddings now for 8 years. I didn't invent the new trend, but have enjoyed riding the wave of the popularity of being a live artist capturing your event.
I'm a wife, mother, rescue dog mom of 3, loyal friend, freelance artist & art teacher. I'm classically trained, have won several artistic merit awards, and currently reside in Southern California. I possess a Single Subject teaching degree in Art and was blessed to travel a semester abroad at the Royal College of Art in London UK - what a dream!
I began art as a young child, my father was a creative and worked in old TV shows like The Incredible Hulk, Partridge Family, and Bionic Woman - while my mother had artistic talent & had been hired for technical & medical drawings. & Would you believe both of their parents were musicians from Europe escaping WWII?! So I am from a long line of creatives, grew up going to art fairs, museums and have been blessed to travel to 26 countries! I grew up in LA and spent summers visiting family in New York. As an only child, when my mother grew ill - I began to excel in the arts and sciences winning awards at school. I decided to become an art teacher and studied at SDSU in the early 90s (maybe before you were born - lol)
You may find me on weekends either painting a couple's beautiful day on canvas at our gorgeous local venues all over Southern California or catching up on paintings in my studio, while enjoying balancing family time.
My artwork is currently shown at-

Thank you for taking the time to read this - I'm an open book and would love to get to know you more. It makes our interaction on your special day even more fun. Hope to paint for you and your family & friends soon to create a magical painting for you!
